Person of Indian Origin

The community of Indians in Cyprus includes Indian expatriates in Cyprus, as well as Cypriot citizens of Indian origin or descent. Even though Cyprus has a much smaller community of Indians compared to other western countries, the community boasts over 2000 Indians primarily in the field of ICT (Information, Communication, Technology) and shipping industry. A large number are employed in various offshore companies. The multi-national company Amdocs maintains an office in Limassol which currently employs over 400 Indian software programmers.[1]

The community also includes a large number of students who have come to Cyprus to pursue higher studies.[2][3] The population has grown almost ten-fold since 1997, when there were barely 300-400 long term Indians present.[2]
